The Galaxy S9 is now live and winning hearts. Before the news fades away and we all forget about the S9, let’s compare it to what could have been the S9, the Galaxy Note 9.
It’s so simple, Samsung is keeping the real ace in plain sight, the real phablet that we should talk about. From what we gathered on the internet and from a few resourceful leaks, the Note 9 will have a major design change, moving away from the edged display on the S9 to completely curved one scaling in at 6.3inches and 2K resolution.
The display will support the in-display fingerprint sensor that we have all been hearing about, although some rumors point to the Galaxy S9’s rear position for the fingerprint sensor. Moving to the top, we get a new 12 Megapixel camera compared to the 8 in the S9 besides it will be the Iris sensor that will get a major update.
The camera on the front of the Samsung Note 9 is rumored to support an emoji like features seen on the iPhone.
Shifting to the back, we get a new Snapdragon 855 for the processing power, S9’s 845 put into comparison. And we get new RAM options like the S9 and S9 Plus, a 6GB for the base 64GB version, 8GB on the 128GB and 256GB variants.
The real stunner will be the camera which will now be a dual 16 Megapixel module with a 28mm lens, variable aperture between f/1.4-f/2.4 and the other 50mm at f/2.8, both featuring OIS for better night time shots compared to the S9’s 12 Megapixel variable aperture module.
The pricing will start at a premium of $850 for base variant.
